These proceedings represent the work of contributors to the 18th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ECCWS 2019), hosted by University of Coimbra, Portugal on 4 - 5 July 2019. The Conference Chair is Tiago Cruz and the Programme Chair is Paulo Simoes from University of Coimbra. ECCWS is a well-established event on the academic research calendar and now in its 18th year, the key aim remains the opportunity for participants to share ideas and meet the people who hold them. The scope of papers will ensure an interesting two days. The subjects covered illustrate the wide range of topics that fall into this important and ever-growing area of research. The opening keynote presentation is given by Dr. Leandros A. Maglaras, from the National Cyber Security Authority of Greece on the topic of Protection of Critical National Infrastructures. The second day of the conference will open with an address by Nuno Medeiros, EDP Distribuição, Lisbon, Portugal, who will talk about Cyber Security Challenges for a Critical Infrastructure Operator. With an initial submission of 157 abstracts, after the double blind, peer review process there are 74 Academic research papers, 12 PhD research papers, 8 Masters Research papers, 4 non-academic papers and 4 work-in-progress papers published in these Conference Proceedings. These papers represent research from Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mozambique, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom and the United States of America. We hope you enjoy the conference.
Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on P2P, Parallel, Grid, Cloud and Internet Computing (3PGCIC-2018)
Author: Fatos Xhafa
Category: Cloud computing
This book presents the latest research findings, as well as innovative theoretical and practical research results, methods and development techniques related to P2P, grid, cloud and Internet computing. It also reveals the synergies among such large scale computing paradigms. P2P, Grid, Cloud and Internet computing technologies have rapidly become established as breakthrough paradigms for solving complex problems by enabling aggregation and sharing of an increasing variety of distributed computational resources on a large scale. Grid computing originated as a paradigm for high-performance computing, offering an alternative to expensive supercomputers through different forms of large-scale distributed computing. P2P computing emerged as a new paradigm following on from client-server and web-based computing and has proved useful in the development of social networking, B2B (Business to Business), B2C (Business to Consumer), B2G (Business to Government), and B2E (Business to Employee). Cloud computing has been described as a “computing paradigm where the boundaries of computing are determined by economic rationale rather than technical limits”. Cloud computing has fast become the computing paradigm with applicability and adoption in all domains and providing utility computing at large scale. Lastly, Internet computing is the basis of any large-scale distributed computing paradigm; it has very quickly developed into a vast and flourishing field with enormous impact on today’s information societies and serving as a universal platform comprising a large variety of computing forms such as grid, P2P, cloud and mobile computing.
